Re: Vizio VW32l HDTV w/no power
Yes most certainly tv's should last longer than a year. What i would suggest is testing your outlet too see if it is putting out and test the tv in another room to see if thats that problem. If you still are having difficulties please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it
I look forward to your posts

I had a lot of problems with the same TV but i'll be watching it and it will go full volume with static and turn off by itself then i would have to unplug it from the wall. then it would work fine for a day or a week then do it again. but today it did it and it wont work the yellow light is on but wont turn on.
Its easier to open up your tv, look at the mainboard id number. Then do a search on google or ebay for the parts. Its alot easier then trying to troubleshoot the actual circuit board, unless your an electronic engineer.
may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.
do any lights come on with the TV?, like white vizio or orange vizio light. sounds like a problem with the power board. some vizio parts have lifetime warranties so contact vizio support and report your problem. if it is covered the service call is free. there is a green led light on the power board that should come on, if it is not on, you may have a bad power board. to see this light on the power board, turn off the lights in the room and view the tv from the back cover, power board is 3/4 way toward top in the middle of the tv
